There is NO reasonable doubt that vaccination with the pertussis
vacine can cause permanent and serious neurological harm. That has
been proven again and again in court cases in the US. In fact, just
this last week another child was awarded millions of dollars in
damages after being brain-damaged by this vaccine. Note that one need
not make any qualifications about that .. not "may have been", but
"was". This is simply no longer debateable. It is only this one
vaccine thaty does this. It is often given in combination with two
other vaccines. If those are given alone, the vaccine is safe.
The vaccine is still required in some places EVEN THOUGH it is known
that it can cause SERIOUS harm to children.
Best of luck.
